Hotel Colorado is an amazing place! Its location is super convenient and owners are so nice that they constantly give us tour information and restaurant recommendations etc. The room is clean and cozy, we had a really pleasant stay in Hotel Colorado :) More

Look no further!!...It is simply the best for your time and value for money. Close to everything from money changer, local and international diners, transportation, bus station and the beach...but yet it is not in the middle of "busy and loud" places... More

Pretty nice hostel to stay in PDC. Closeby location to anything you need:) One negative was extremely low water pressure at times when you hardly got any water. More

We were staying in a private room and it was extremly noisy during the night. This is clearly a party hostel and not necessarily for people who want to relax. Then again, nothing really is in Playa del Carmen... More

The stay at Che B&B was one of the best parts of our trip. The location was excellent!!! Close walk from the ADO bus station, the famous 5th avenue, the fairy and the beach! The neighborhood where B&B is located in is so quaint & quite, it is the perfect place if you are looking to relax More

Annette, the current host of the hostel is very, very nice and helpful with everything. There is a very friendly atmosphere in the hostel with barbecues to get to know people better and a small pool to chill and a TV in the common room with a huge selection of movies - in case you don't More

Good place to stay. Off the crazy party scene path and close to cafes and a really neat place called The Moulon Rouge, a beautiful, eclectic artistic cafe/gallery with live music and yummy drinks. Hostel Playa has kind people working there (the owner is a playful goofball) and good vibes More

I've enjoyed the stay. Guy from reception was very helpful - big thanks for that. Just the fact that you may get bitten from mosquitos etc while you're just in (or on the way to) the shared bathroom is a bit annoying... (so maybe I'll grab room with private bath next time) More

Nice, chilled hostel near the beach and town center. The small communal area in the middle is nice for relaxing and eating. Toilets and showers are grungy but work fine. Staff was friendly and helpful. More

Private rooms are not private at all, they are just divided by a fake half-wall, so you share noises, lights... Staff was not really helpful either. Overall we got a really bad impression from the hostel More
